Chiefs' Roy Miller Arrested for Domestic Battery in Florida


Details of Roy Miller's domestic battery arrest emerged Sunday.

With the AFC West-leading Chiefs (6-3) on a bye this week, Miller traveled to his home in Jacksonville. He was held in jail without bond until he appeared in court Saturday afternoon.

A police report states that officers were called to a home where police met Miller's wife, Nicole.

The argument turned physical and Nicole Miller told police that he grabbed her by the hair and pushed her around.

When police arrived at the couple's home, Roy Miller was inside sleeping.

Miller said in court that he will be hiring an attorney. Her shirt was almost ripped completely off her body, the report says.

The report includes corroborating testimony from witnesses, including one who said she heard the couple arguing and brought the kids to the other end of the house. However, at least legally speaking, Roy Miller won't have to face a courtroom again until November 28. He agreed to speak with police outside.

The report says the two have been married for six and a half years.

"This morning we were informed about an incident involving one of our players, Roy Miller", the statement read. Details have yet to unfold here, but these types of situations typically result in a suspension of some kind and for any sort of fringe player, it can usually equal an outright release from the team. They declined any further comment.

Miller is now in his ninth National Football League season.

The Chiefs signed Miller back in August. Miller now has six tackles in seven games with the Chiefs this season.
